Kinda depends on how lazy I am, actually.

Used to ride in breeches all the time, but now eh. My horse is 100 yards behind the house. If I can't be bothered to dig around and find my breeches I'll just ride in jeans.

Funny enough I found tights way more restricted then breeches when I tried them in Dover (I tried like 3-4 different brands).

Should it also depends on quality of leathers? I'd think smooth as butter very broke-in leathers should be pretty safe (I don't have those, just my thought).

I want to know where the $20 full seat breeches are on line! It seems full seat are always spendy.

I love my breeches for lessons. I used to wear jeans trail riding without chaps on but breeches are so much more comfy!

Anything soft and stretchy that will fit in my tall boots and wont rip when I get on a 17.2 hand horse works for me (:

Please do not do this. Those tights are not designed to be worn as pants. They are way too see thru. Please do all of the rest of a us a favor and do not buy leggings and wear them as pants. (Not specifically saying this to the OP or the quoted poster, general thing.)

I ride in jeans. I pretty much always hack in jeans. I hate hate hate riding in breeches and tall boots. I find breeches to be horribly uncomfortable.
I do wear my breeches and tall boots for lessons.
